Shipping 3dcart vs. CS-Cart

Hello Guest_V4Market_,

  1. Can I set quantity discounts by vendor? 3. Can I assign discounts by group? I currently have 3 customer groups, each with a different discount.

    Yes, CS-Cart allows you to apply different quantity discounts to different user groups. Information about quantity discounts is given in the following article:

2. Can I assign a flat shipping rate by product?

This feature is not included in CS-Cart by default, however, you can specify Shipping freight. It is a handling fee (insurance, packaging, etc.) added to the product cost.

5. The demo store has only one vendor that I could see, so I really didn't get a feel for what multiple vendors would look like to a customer.

You can test CS-Cart functionality using a 15-day personal demo (http://www.cs-cart.c…sonal-demo.html) or 30-day CS-Cart trial version ([url=“Download the most feature-rich B2B eCommerce software CS-Cart B2B&B2C”]https://www.cs-cart.com/trial.html[/url]).



You will be able to add the required number of vendors to see how the store looks like with several vendors.

4. Customers CAN sign up for a group at registration, but I saw a post in this forum that it wasn't working. Is it OK now?

[/quote]



We have checked this functionality in version 4.0.1. The customers can sign up for a user group after they click on the “Register” button in the storefront. The tab “Usergroups” should appear on the screen and they need to click “Join”. After that the user group will have the “Pending” status.



The admin should activate it manually on the page Customers > User Groups > View user group requests .
